Hi my name is Katherine. I am currently still a student at St Joan of Arc. Having finished A levels in English, Philosophy & Ethics and History, I have stayed on an extra year to study Art. I hope to go to the University of the Arts to study Prosthetic Make-Up for the Performing Arts next year.

I have been involved in Udayan since starting in the sixth form and have enjoyed taking part in car washing, a couple of the fund raising evenings, and a really hard sponsored silence! I have a couple of friends who have been on this same trip and I cannot wait to go and see everything for myself.

I think that visiting the children at Udayan and being able to play with them and see what their life is like will be an extraordinary experience. I know am going to enjoy teaching the little ones to read the beautiful books we are taking with us. I’m so excited that I’m going to be seeing it all with my own eyes having heard so much about the home over the past few years.
